Last night Wholesomeone.com hosted a twitter party about yoga therapy, including giving away awesome prizes. Mel was the featured moderator, tweeter…speaker. You know what I mean.
If you weren’t able to make it you missed a great conversation about how to practice if you’re a beginner, benefits of yoga and some random thoughts that Mel has about yoga…maybe the only platform where those thoughts are appreciated 😉
@MelMoves I would love to practice a home…just seems like too many distractions #YogaTherapy @melmoves I want to feel more connected to everything around me, I think yoga could do that. #yogatherapy @MelMoves Its definitely open me up to trying new things. Like riding a bike. #yogatherapy #chronicpain
@MelMoves: @TheeJuliette It can Try giving your knees a little bend, might help you find more access to your thoracic spine. #yogatherapy @MelMoves I’m not flexible. Can I still do yoga and get the benefits? #yogatherapy @DisneyMom917 You can do more than you probably think you can! Do yoga to discover what you can do. #yogatherapy @Melmoves @wholesomeone I think anything that can reduce stress is a plus for your health and your mind! #yogatherapy
Yoga does not have to defined by shape-making. You can practice by just following your breath as you move.
Usually mountain pose is considered the standard foundation for all poses. But I believe it’s cat/cow. Thoughts?
#yogatherapy @MelMoves Considering that the spine is the root of the body, you may be correct. Heating up the spine really empowers you through. @AutumnNColorado Depends on what you want to do. Make it safe, by forgetting the goal of shape and feel your way through. #yogatherapy @AutumnNColorado Beginner is always safe. I never find it “easy” because there is always a new personal level. #yogatherapy @WholesomeOne i notice my stress level is less after i practice yoga #YogaTherapy #yogatherapy I practice at home. Regularly. Changed my life!
